Subject: problem with Exp() function in field calculator

I am trying to do an exponential transformation of a field in a data set. In the field calculator I typed Exp (N2) where N2 equals the field name of the data I want to transform. It populates the entire field with ones. If I just do a single record with Exp(3) where three equals the value in that record for column N2 it gives me the desired number. So I apparently do not have the syntax correct but I cannot find it in help. I am sure this is not hard to do but I am missing some vital info.
